Description

2019 Autism Friendly Cities Institute

This event is for all city, county, and municipal employees. Come learn how to improve access, inclusion, and safety for individuals with autism and their families! At this no-cost training, attendees will hear from professionals on how to develop and implement strategies and techniques to improve accessibility, communication, awareness, and understanding about autism across city services and programs.

This year our keynote speaker is Toby Honsberger from The Learning Academy. Toby was recently recognized for his work on creating the Autism Friendly Natural Area in Jupiter. We will also have a panel of speakers who represent local cities that will share their methods and strategies used to make their cities autism friendly.
